A 6 month span it is for rention, IIRC. But what you propose won't cover
internal E-mail that is trashed, e.g. a VP requests that a project manager
penalises OpenGL as a strategic move. There have been leaks that go along
these lines which reveal the truth about IE incompatibilities with
standards. MBR (elminatiom of rivals) is another issue that doesn't win the
attention it deserves. I wonder what correspondence in-house says about it.
Same question arise with regards to back doors, server interoperability and
the EU fines (for evading disclosure of protocols). The boxes of MS
employees must be a pleasure and delight to an antitrust solicitor.
